I enjoy my role here and the work I do, but it's difficult to look long term when there is no job security. The field work during summer/autumn is fantastic, and the hands on work keeps me up to speed with all the studies running. Love the animal work. I have a fantastic technician who I can trust to do things well, as per protocol, when I'm not there.
Funding is extremely limited and this is difficult to work with particularly when a lack of support is perceived.
